Funny and delightful throughout, even with very serious themes bubbling underneath the surface.

Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

More action-packed and manga-style, but its predictable plot points (punch-ups and air-battles) are secondary to Miyazaki-esque scenes of women's work, the indifferent beauty of nature and war as nightmare.

Mr. Miyazaki smooshes fantasy and history into a pastel-pretty yarn as irresistible as his feminism.

Antagony & Ecstasy

That a pretty great adventure movie can rest comfortably alongside a strange tale of identity and morality... is proof enough that we're in the hands of a master storyteller

Animator/fabulist Hayao Miyazaki pays homage to Hollywood's wartime adventure films in this masterwork built around the adventures of a high-flying pig.

Eye for Film

Combining exquisite animation, (slyly subverted) Boys' Own action, and (barely concealed) adult themes, Porco Rosso goes the whole hog, offering anti-war escapades that will appeal to all ages.

Combustible Celluloid

It's a film Miyazaki made for himself, to indulge his passion for seaplanes, and this personal enthusiasm comes through clearly.

Believe it or not, my latest favorite movie hero just happens to be a flying pig. I'm not kidding.

He does things his way, and he makes no apologies for having a snout. In fact, he's kind of smug about it.

It resembles in its best moments a fanciful version of Casablanca with a porcine Bogey in the lead.

...a near miss that nevertheless fares better than most of Miyazaki's output.
